Local Roundup: Miners finish first SFL slate as champions
Nevada Union’s regular-season-finale win was bittersweet Tuesday at Roseville, where NU’s volleyball team won 3-0 (25-16, 25-16, 25-15).
The Miners (23-4 overall, 11-1 Sierra Foothill League) clinched the SFL championship with the win, but were without injured outside hitter Sarah McAtee (ankle) and setter Jen Sager (toe).
NU coach Bob Rogers doesn’t know when the two will be healthy enough to play again.
“In both cases, they could be back in a couple days,” Rogers said.
Nevada Union’s final action before the playoffs, which start Tuesday, is Saturday at the Elite 8 Tournament at St. Francis.
The Miners will host the first round of the playoffs at 7 p.m.
Christian Woodruff and Kylie Miraldi each posted seven kills Tuesday, while Caroline Reeves added six and Kristin Dahle finished with five.
Alexis Moser set in game one and Reeves took over the duty in games two and three.
JV: Nevada Union 2, Roseville 0
Katie Reis and Hannah Baker helped the Miners (18-8 overall, 7-5 SFL) to a 25-19, 25-16 win in the season finale at Roseville.
Reis had four kills and Baker hit 13 service points.
Hayden Fleenor, Paige Carnahan and Sophia Melas also contributed with solid serving games, while Kristin Quinn, Morgan Mitchell and Tess Ely played well defensively.
Makela McTighe added a solid game setting.
Frosh: Nevada Union 2, Roseville 0
The Miners won 25-15, 29-27 at Roseville to end the season on a high note.
